BBC News Storm warning for south of England

The Met Office has warned that a storm forecast for Monday could cause disruption in the south of England. An amber alert for wind has been issued and there is also concern that heavy rain could cause flooding. The Met Office said the public in the affected area "should be prepared for the risk of falling trees as well as damage to buildings and other structures" caused by strong winds. There is uncertainty about the timing of the storm at this stage. Colin Seddon from the BBC Weather Centre said it "is certainly the worst storm we've seen this year". He said there is potential for gusts of wind over 80mph, especially on exposed coasts in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Hampshire, West Sussex, East Sussex and Kent.


Hi ATSers as the title says Im not expecting this to be the worst thing that has ever happend to us in the UK I just want people to have a heads up and just be a little bit prepared. It might be nice if we get some photos of this storm when/if it hits us and add them to the thread. I decided to make this thread as last weekend the media reported a tornado on Hayling Island in Hampshire which damaged a 100 homes and uprooted trees BBC News

Right on my doorstep. I'm in Gosport just outside Portsmouth, not far from Hayling Island where the tornados happened. I look forward to sipping a hot coffee looking out my window at the wind and the rain, something mesmerising about it I find.

Im just outside Gosport, not far at all from Hayling and I have been enjoying the weather of late. Maybe a tornado here would be good, save me hunting for them abroad.

I love storms, obviously not when there's damage and people hurt, but otherwise, bring it on.

I'm lucky enough to live high up enough not to get flooded, but the village could get cut off. Me and my neighbours would be ok though for a little while.

CX.

Hope not, because my brother and his family live down there so will be worried if a storm really hits bad...

Love a good storm!

Lucky for me I live in its potential path....unlucky for me, we have scaffolding at present!


Interestingly enough, I believe Piers Corbyn called this one about six weeks ago...


THE BIG ONE IS coming to WHACK SOUTH B+I as in WeatherAction (33d ahead) forecast according to 7 day ahead model maps below. After our notable success in timing, nature, general pressure patterns and approximate storm system tracks for the 17-18th rain event and the "Trafalgar-Night+" storm of ~21-22nd +22nd / R5 ~21-23rd (See previos blog - DelugesThunder+sev gales confirm W-Action fc 33d ahead http://(link tracking not allowed)/16Ygiyd ) THE BIG ONE we predicted to follow looks like being on course from our prediction 6weeks ahead "This is the most important storm period this month in our forecasts both sides of the Atlantic" said Piers. (Further comm 23/24th) "For Br+Ir the forecast significance was and is both the intensity and southerly damaging track on course for major population areas. "Our USA storm forecast far a powerful Low Pressure in SOUTH USA pretty well simultaneous with events in England and France looks like also being confirmed. THIS BI+Europe STORM WAS AND IS SCHEDULED TO CAUSE SIGNIFICANT DAMAGE IN IRELAND, WALES, SOUTH ENGLAND AND MUCH OF N/W FRANCE - See Euromaps forecast.

Good luck everyone... mind you given the met office are now on board with this, chances are it'll be a light breeze

I'm in West Sussex almost exactly half way between London and Brighton (just south of Gatwick Airport) and we seem to avoid the worst of the big storms (apart from 1987) as we seem to be sheltered by the north and south downs.The BBC five day forecast for us gives just 26 MPH winds and light showers with sunny intervals,lets hope it's calmed down for everyone by then.

WOW, it's Thursday here in the states, and over in England they can forecast storms almost a half a week in advance?

This is supposed to hit on Monday of next week?

DAMN, we need to get some of your weather people over here in the states.

For the record, I grew up off the shore of Lake Michigan. You have never seen anything like a storm coming off the lake, in a north/east to south/west fashion.

Just don't be standing on the shore!!!! Neat stuff

Be safe.

Just behold the power of nature. It is beautiful, but, it can be a bitch.........

The forecasts as to what's going to happen do tend to be pretty accurate nowadays,but they can still be out by a day or two when it's going to happen.
This is how the BBC shows it to us.....

Thanks for the heads up.

I'm smack in the middle of its projected path so should be good

I live on land reclaimed from the sea.

I live on the other side of this sea wall. On the other side we're about 15ft below high tide level.

This is what its like on a moderately windy day so the coming storm could be interesting

Always feels a little over dramatic posting about British weather, when its nothing compared to what other countries weather can be like. We don't suffer from any really bad weather like the natural disasters we see in other continents. No typhoons, no hurricanes, no forest fires, no tsunamis. Just heavy spells of rain with a bit of thunder and lightening if your lucky. Maybe a few inches of snow that grind the country to a halt.
